Electoral district of Tarneit
Location of Tarneit (dark green) in Greater Melbourne
|Party||Australian Labor Party|
|Area||124 km2 (47.9 sq mi)|
The seat is located in the south western suburbs of Melbourne, including Werribee, Tarneit and the eastern parts of Hoppers Crossing. It is a safe seat for the Australian Labor Party with a current margin of 14.6%.
The first member for the seat, elected in 2002, was Mary Gillett, formerly member for abolished Werribee. She was defeated for Labor preselection for the 2006 election by Tim Pallas, then chief of staff to Premier Steve Bracks. Following an electoral redistribution for the 2014 election, Pallas moved to the recreated seat of Werribee, and Telmo Languiller, formerly member for abolished Derrimut, replaced him in Tarneit.
